The Georgia Aquarium joined Change the Course and committed to restoring 10 million gallons of freshwater to Georgia ecosystems each year. Why 10 million gallons? Because that’s how much water it takes to fill the Aquarium. They’re using that fun fact – alongside their water restoration commitment – as an opportunity to encourage visitors to join them in changing the course.
How They Inspire
The Georgia Aquarium is asking visitors to make a commitment with them and work to conserve water in their day-to-days lives be doing things like shortening shower times, reducing food waste, and landscaping with native plants.
Since launching the campaign in July 2018, over 3,000 people have taken the pledge and are helping to do their part to Change the Course in Georgia. Check out the activation here.
The Impact They’re Making
The Aquarium’s funding supported the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper’s work to build a new park along Proctor Creek that will reduce polluted runoff and flooding, and the Flint River Soil and Water Conservation District’s project assisting farmers in using less water while also increasing production.
